Reviews for Chocolate Chip Molasses Cookies
"<p>Cookies doesn't have any chocolate flavor at all. Even while they were being baked in the oven, I couldn't smell any cookies like I usually do when baking cookies. Sure enough, the baked cookies doesn't taste like any of the chocolate chip cookies at all, all they taste like was sugarly & molassesy sweetness, but without a hint of chocolate flavor. I would say they were horrible, but for someone that enjoy fake sugarly sweet stuff, this might be up their alley</p>"
"This recipe was great! We had some friends over and we were playing games while I baked these cookies. I could barely get them out of the oven before they were all eaten!! I added some nutmeg and ginger to add some spice to my batch and it tasted great!"
